Heart"beet" Cutlets

Beetroot, I don't know why its taste confuses me, do I like it or not?:) Still for health sake I do eat beetroots happily! Beetroot is another wonder food on earth that is loaded with vitamins and minerals. And the colour, so dramatic, so royal and when it is added to white, the pink, is just the perfect romantic colour and this is what I needed!!! These cutlets are very easy to make. BTW, I really love the name I've given them "heart -beet" Cutlets!!. Hope you like it!!
